've heard from nra's wayne lapierre that is something that they are not for, in fact the nra has gone so far as to say it's in the in support of any restrictions at all whatsoever on guns. martha,. martha: we know that the president, kelly is going to run into headwinds even with democrats in congress on this issue. what is his plan to try to get it through? >> reporter: i think we are seeing that plan start taking shape today with his trip to minneapolis. the president will likely continue these campaign-style stops at various cities that have been plagued with gun control, minneapolis being one of them and already taking action of course to deal with this gun control problem, the gun violence in that city. the president will continue to push for this. he will not try to introduce any legislation himself, he wants congress to do that e wants congress to step up to the table and go ahead and offer some of its plans that he has in place. the president would like to see congress act or enact a ban on assault weapons, high kpwas te capacity magazines and a universal background check. senate maj

, black gun ownership lags far behind white gun ownership. perhaps we know wayne lapierre is wrong about good guys and bad guys and guns. many of us find him hard to trust. his recent editorial in the daily caller spoke of supposedly rampant crime and murder in some place he called south brooklyn in the days after hurricane sandy. i live in brooklyn and there is no place referred to as south brooklyn but i think it's safe to say when he says that, much of the country envisions a place clogged with black people. if adam lanza with walked in a school in south brooklyn, we would probably not be having a sustained national conversation about guns. adam just smushed the pain of the gun epidemic in america's faw face but black people have been living with that pain for so long we're numb to it. black on black crime is a far more prevalent problem. we need greater out rage over that. i say this as the son of a long time gun owner who carries a gun to keep him safe as he moves through boston's black areas. when people say what has obama done for the black community, tell them whatever he accompl
's executive vice president, wayne lapierre put out the rallying cry in an op-ed on the website the daily caller, responding to president obama's calls in his state of the union address for new gun laws. he suggests the president already made it clear he wants to ban all semiautomatic weapons and he says, quote, it's not paranoia to buy a gun. it is survival. anderson discussed all this with nra president david keene. >> you criticized the president's state of the union comments saying he was trying to use emotion to force things through. you said that's a mistake because that's the way you get to bad policy. the nra, though, aren't you also using emotion? wayne lapierre wrote an op-ed and he said, hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, these are perils we're sure to face, it's not just paranoia to buy a gun. it's survival. isn't that also using emotion? >> back during katrina, when there was lawlessness in new orleans and around there, authorities tried to take away everyone's firearms. we had to go to court to get those removed and prohibit the government from doing that in times of emergency. w

, connecticut, which left 26 people dead, nra ceo wayne lapierre has pushed the narrative more guns means a safer america. gun rights activists have embraced this claim, with some going even further than that and capitalizing on the national discussion. a youth hockey league in fargo, north dakota, with players as young as 4 years old plans to give away 200 firearms in a raffle. it's a great fundraiser for them. the new hampshire association of chiefs of police is raffling off 31 firearms, including semiautomatic weapons. and the latest all around pizzas and deli in virginia beach, virginia, is offering 15% discount if you carry openly to the store or show them a concealed weapons permit. here is a happy customer posing with her son's semiautomatic rifle. it's fun for the whole family, isn't it, young and old. see, in virginia it's legal to carry a gun into banks, hospitals, stores, movie theaters, restaurants, and open carry is even allowed in bars. sounds like a great idea. let's see, guns and alcohol, mix them together, nothing is going to happen. here is what more guns have led to in

's no doubt, angela, that the numbers of gun owners who feel the way that wayne lapierre feels. >> the president has their polls. wayne lapierre does not. i remember in elementary school i had to take a current event class and i'm wondering if he's not paying attention to the news. we have newtown with 20 kids gone. and you have this new killer on the rampage in los angeles. at some point the gun laws can no longer control us. we have to control them. >> well, i wonder, too, david if they are tone deaf. universal background checks, which do seem, if anything, have the broadest support. take a listen. >> at first glance, there's nothing universal about it at all. but think about it, criminals won't be part of that universe. think about it. they will steal their guns. >> the polls are not on the nra side. 52% of americans support stricter gun control laws. overwhelming support for the universal background checks. 92%. 56% support a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. is the nra tone deaf? >> well, i think clearly there's a reaction to newtown that is not expected,
, background checks and the like is wayne lapierre, whenever he goes on the air, i think he illustrates just how radical and crazy this wing of the nra is. i don't think that represents the actual view of the majority of nra members. >> it does not. >> i don't know, i don't know. >> mika, 80% of nra members support universal background checks. a majority of nra members support getting rid of these high capacity magazines. i'm telling you the overwhelming majority of nra members are hunters and people that want to support -- >> double the price and making them sell out. >> the survivalist wing of the nra. >> there's a lot of them. >> you say there's a lot of them. >> a lot of gun owners and people buying guns. people want their second amendment rights. the clash -- we're kind of not having the right conversation. this has to be about common sense gun safety and live and breathe in memories of people who died not just chicago or newtown and the last decade or so. we're too caught in wayne lapierre and rhetoric, to me nra is about buying and selling guns, not about second amendment and gun safe
bogged down in these budget fights, especially gun control last night, wayne lapierre of the nra coming out hard against universal background checks. >> background checks. it all sounds so reasonable. but don't you be fooled. it's aimed at registering your guns. and when another tragic opportunity presents itself, that registry will be used to confiscate your guns. >> donna brazile, it seems as this whole effort has slowed down. >> no, it hasn't. it has gone on. joe biden is the public face of it. he's out there meeting, he was in newtown last week, he's traveling all across the country meeting with law enforcement officials. patrick leahy will be putting together some proposals to try to advance this at the end of the month. gun safety laws are still topic "a" across the country from tucson to colorado. maryland. state lawmakers are taking the initiative. i think mr. wayne lapierre is on the wrong side of history. >> it has slowed down. but the reason it has showed down is because the president's own party is divided on this issue. when you look in the senate, there's a lot of disagree
's talk about that rebuttal by the great wayne lapierre. what's most amazing is that it did not at all mirror his barely concealed nativism which was on display in an editorial release that day. hurricanes tornadoes, riots, terrorists, gangs, lone criminals, these are perils we are sure to face, not just maybe. it's not paranoia to buy a gun. it's survival. it's responsible behavior, and it's time we encourage law-abiding americans to do just that. what do you think would have been the reaction, mark, if he had actually said that on camera? >> well, it might have been similar to the reaction that he got when they had that press conference after the newtown shooting which was sort of disbelief at how disconnected and extreme the nra's washington lobbyists are when most of us know nra members are ordinary folks who take guns and take shooting classes from the nra and think everybody should get a background check. the interesting thing here is not just how extreme wayne lapierre has become but how different the leadership has become from the members of this organization. >> but, mark, he'

in the eyes of the left? >> well, i think their main concern is that wayne lapierre will use it in his next hearing to argue that everyone ought to have a drone. >> jennifer: gee. >> like any good card-carrying liberal people have concerns, but is it because we trust obama before than bush? yes, yes we do. and i have had a surprising number of people check in, military people, military guys from afghanistan who said, look this saves soldiers lives, and i think we came out of such a dumb unnecessary war in iraq, when president obama said he's going to fight a tougher but smarter war on terror he has. it's absolutely a tough issue. >> jennifer: yes, i completely agree with what you have just said. i'm interested in karl's take on it. first of all i agree that we trust the president. if this was bush we would be up in arms because we would not trust that he would strike in a very targeted way and try to minis. >> somebody today said that we took out blocks and blocks, that was not a targeted strikes. how many hundred of civilians in iraq did we kill? >> jennifer: karl, if there is this fight

people in this new country would never be subjugated again and have to live under tyranny. >> so wayne lapierre is talking about the second amendment to the constitution there, and he is kind of correct. in this country we have a constitutional right to bear arms. the second amendment is 27 words long, quote, a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed there is a lot of debate about what kind of arms the second amendment refers to and exactly what a well regulated militia is. but it is clear one of the things the founders wanted people to be able to do is to protect themselves from the government, government overreach. and this is a fact of american life that the most liberal of liberals or progressive of progressives simply can't deny. the constitution protects this right. here is the deal. for the past 48 hours, we've been watching a horrifying story unfold in los angeles. a frightening case study in what happens when someone decides to bastardize those rights and to use those second am
'donnell didn't make it. and unfortunately, nothing i have said here about blood-drenched lobbyist wayne lapierre, i have not made the list. in fact no one from msnbc has made the list, but nbc is on the list, and maybe we can presume that everybody picking up a paycheck is on the list. and that would put me on that guy on the list. but i don't want to be on the list with that guy. so i will just have to wait patiently for the nra to put me on the enemy's list. and when and if they do, i hope they don't put me on the anti-gun journalist section of the list, and they probably won't. it just doesn't a single journalist, just cartoonists, that is where you find frank rich, e.j. dionne, and the columnist, jimmy breslin, from whom every newspaper columnist has learned a thing or two. i want to be on the fun section of the list, where albert brooks is, it is by far the longest section of the list and includes more friends of mine than any other part of the list. norman lear, spike lee, rob lowe, madonna. okay, i don't really know her, i just met her a long time ago. you get the idea, this is t

. >> wayne lapierre runs the nra. he's a fascinating and in my view a very dangerous character. he has done complete u-turns on background checks. he used to be in total favor of universal background checks. he was in favor of all schools being gun free. now he wants the opposite. everything is geared towards now with the nra and the leadership, not the membership, but the leadership toward the sale of guns and ammunition. >> and the recommendations are to keep the flow and sale of guns. 3 million guns are imported to the united states every year, 5 million guns that are manufactured here are sold. the nra is funded by the gun lobbyists. i say to smith & wesson, to remington, all the other gun manufacturers, what about putting a gps chip in those guns? you assume the responsibility and cost. i have proposed this to white house, to congress. put a gps chip in that gun. so the responsible gun owner whose house gets robbed by some little punk, and those guns are sold to the bad guys, you should be able to act vite it like i have an ipad, and if somebody steals my ipad, i can activate that app

bloomberg's group, that showed that group of wayne lapierre of the nra support of background checks in 1999. because the debate was so much further to the left back then, the nra was under pressure just seemed to be moderate and support some forms of gun control, such as background checks. there's a report from that time that wayne lapierre threatened to quit the nra if they didn't support some kind of control such as background checks. that's helped them win more elections in red states and people like harry reid get elected in nevada, a pretty pro-gun state. the question is, is that going to be productive for people who want to see gun control get passed? will this mean an increased prag ma tichl, mean that the issue has a better chance of getting through? >> and what's the answer to that question? do we know? >> i don't have a crystal ball, but if you talk to people who support gun control, they have been beaten down for a long time, losing consistently for 20 years will do that to you. and they feel better than they ever have. there is, as you know, a lot of momentum behind this issue.

of segues into what i want to talk about. and the nra we have seen wayne lapierre acting like a fool. i think they are really concerned, because they whelded an amazing amount of power for who knows how long and they are seeing that slip through their fingers. they targeted seven candidates this past fall, and michael bloomberg purposefully challenged those seven of those candidates and he won five of the seven. >> stephanie: it's time to say the emperor has no clothes. they have no power anymore, right? >> caller: yes, i wish your republican politicians could figure that out and not live in fear of those guys any longer. >> stephanie: absolutely. be gone, you have no power here. wayne lapierre >> i think they'll turn this universal check of the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people. >> i don't quite understand what is so bad -- >> stephanie: no one does. >> you -- you register your car -- >> stephanie: right. >> people have a license plate that can be identified. >> stephanie: right, and a car isn't designed to kill. it can. >> theed in that
by opponents of the second amendment. >> has the nra changed their position on this? because wayne lapierre is snow saying universal background checks don't work. i saw this testimony he gave in 1999 to the house judiciary committee and he said, quote, we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes for anyone. >> the answer is yes, the nra has changed their position. the reason it's changed their position is because the system doesn't work. the system is not working now. we have to get that working before we can add any more checks to that system. it's already overburdened. in colorado, it takes ten days to do an instant check. >> you're saying if it got working, if the existing laws started to be improved, you might support the imposition? >> i don't know. let's get it working. let's make sure the 23 states that aren't reporting the names of people who are mentally ill and have violent tendencies, let's get them reported into the system. >> i don't understand why you can't do both. the reality is, yes, 60% of

't continue. 89% of republicans actually support this idea of universal background checks and wayne lapierre himself when he was testifying about this on behalf of the nra years ago said he was in favor of universal background checks so at least have some consistency about this. clearly, the american people are standing in favor of this. how can 435 people in the house of representatives stand in the way of what the overwhelming majority of the american people want? >> with that said, looking again at legislation, we have talked a lot about what this does to this country, how it makes us feel. we know this but it has to move along to some kind of legislation in your opinion from what we have seen thus far, and combined with this poll, is that the heart of what we're looking at eventually, universal background check? major legislation that comes out of this? >> ultimately, i think there's a compromise and mental health care, service pros vided. >> sure. >> a background check. i think they're going to try to do high capacity magazines. i don't know if they get the assault weapons ban but a maj
to investigate him last year. they showcase people like him. they showcase people like wayne lapierre whose basic argument is we should only pass laws that criminals would abide by. you would think that a party, the party of 47%, would be trying to figure out how to become the party of 51%. but by all these indications it looks like they're striving to be the party of 10%. >> right. let's forget about that philosopher ted nugent for a second. because the president said in that chamber in the presence of multiple individuals who have either themselves been the victims of horrendous gun violence or relatives of theirs have too. he said they deserve a vote. you're a man in the house. is that ever going to happen? >> if it were, it would have to start in the senate first. the reason being pure politics. you have some democrats up for election in 2014 who come from red states. republicans want to force them to take a tough vote on anything before speaker boehner would make his gop do it on the other side. however, i do think there's an appetite. it's possible to have a bill move forward in the area of
